Last Week’s Workouts

Last week's workouts | happyfitmama.com

Last week’s workouts were kept mostly easy in anticipation of the Seacoast Half Marathon. It’s crazy that it’s been two years since I did a half (and 5 years since I ran this race) when for years the 13.1 distance was my jam. I’m rusty on racing (and rusty in racing in general) those so it was almost like I was running my first ever half all over again.

Tuesday

5 mile run, 9:22 avg/pace

#PraiseBe for daylight savings time!  I’m loving the lighter mornings (even if it is only temporary).  It was extra brighter thanks to being able to meet up with Kailey.  Once again, I forgot how to dress for these weird in between conditions.  It was raining with a real feel of upper 30s so I dressed in capris, short sleeve shirt and rain jacket.  I was too hot!  Gah.

A highlight of the run was when a 20 something year old girl reminded us to vote today.  You betcha we did! 🙂

Thursday

5 mile run, 8:40 avg/pace

I don’t know if it was our conversations or our legs were feeling fresh and light, but Kyle and I picked up the pace during the middle miles.  It felt good so we went with it.

Notice the cat in the picture post run?  It was pitch black out and I didn’t know the friendly neighborhood cat was around until I felt something rubbing against my leg just as my phone took the pic.  My first thought was, “What is Kyle rubbing against my leg?”  Lol!

Friday

Rest Day!

Saturday

3 miles, 9:20 avg pace

It was a downright miserably cold Saturday.  Windy and ridiculous amounts of rain made me put off doing a shake out run until mid morning.  But like always, once I was out there, it was fine.  But I’m very glad I wasn’t running longer than a few miles.

Sunday

13.3 miles, 8:26 avg pace

I’ll have a full recap coming later this week with my feelings about that!

  1. These temps are tough to dress for! Knock wood, I’ve been doing alright, but it feels like I have to re-learn this gig every season LOL I did have to dig out the fleece-lined tights for the first time this weekend…..

  2. Our weather is just now getting what we consider “cold”. I couldn’t even find my favorite capris for today’s run as they are only needed a few months out of the year. Half marathons, OK all races, where once my jam too. It’s feels odd not to care so much about that any more. It looks like you maintained a great pace for your half marathon. Congrats! Now, we need to hear the details! Thanks for linking!

  3. Well, that’s a great pace for 13.3! Was it a race or a training run? I guess I’ll have to check back…

    It’s way too early for this cold and wind!!!

  4. I too am loving the lighter mornings! So much easier to get the kids up and off to school, too! Three cheers for daylight savings!
